Avalon, the series will begin “airing” in May on this blog. Written in story form, the pilot episode will start on 5/2 and post as a Monday/Friday regular right through season 1. Share this, call a friend, don’t miss out.
Avalon is a story about people thrown back to the beginning of history whose only way home is through time gates and across the time zones which are mysteriously tied to life after life of the Kairos, the Watcher over History. Unfortunately, the Kairos cannot send them home quicker, nor prepare them for what they might face when they step into the future, nor really protect them from what may be following them. Apparently, they are not the only ones traveling through the time gates….
Robert Lockhart, a former policeman is charged with leading this expedition through time and has no idea how he is going to get everyone home — alive.
Boston, a Massachusetts redneck, rodeo rider and technological genius who finished her PhD at age 23. She is in love with all of the adventure, and the spiritual creatures they encounter, all of which suggests she is a little strange.
Benjamin Lincoln, a former C. I. A. office geek keeps the database and a record of their journey. He tends to worry and is not the bravest soul, but sometimes that is an asset.
Alexis Lincoln, an elf who became human to marry Benjamin. She retained her magic when she became human, but sometimes magic has its limits. It can’t make her father be happy with her choices.
Mingus, father of Alexis, an elder elf who ran the history department in Avalon for over 300 years. He knows the time zones and the lives of the Kairos but tends to keep his opinions to himself. And he believes his children are being ruined by so much human interaction.
Roland, Alexis’ younger brother, a full blood elf and gifted hunter came to keep Mingus under control and out of his sister’s face. He discovers there is something in humanity worth saving and protecting. He knows many of the creatures in the spirit world, including the nasty ones inclined to rise up out of the dark.
Doctor Procter, half-elf, half-human. He is Mingus’ associate in the history department and carries the amulet, a sophisticated electronic GPS and magical device that leads the way from one time gate to the next.
Lieutenant Katie Harper, a marine whose specialty is ancient and medieval cultures and technologies. She is torn between her duty to the marines and her desire to be part of this larger universe she is discovering.
Captain Decker, navy seal and special operations officer who will do all he can to keep everyone alive, even if it means shooting his way back to the twenty-first century. He is a skeptic who does not believe the half of what they experience – even if he does not know what else to believe.
From the Pilot Episode
“I could fetch Mingus easily enough through the Heart, but Alexis is human. I have no such power over her and I would not dare leave her alone in history.” Alice paused to collect her thoughts before she spoke again. “As I said, each time zone centers around a life I once lived. But I stand at the center of each time zone and the center moves with me. If they came to the center I could do something, but as long as Mingus skirts around the edges and moves from zone to zone, I can do nothing.”…….
……. “Your pardon.” Lockhart spoke up again. “But why are you afraid to leave her alone in history?” His instincts were acting up again.
Alice looked at the man but she could say nothing less than the truth. “Because most of my lives are surrounded by danger. And if you die in the past, you will remain dead forever. And then there is this.” Alice swallowed. “Several years ago, though Ashtoreth was defeated as I said, she sent ghouls and bogeys, terrible giants and dragons and things too terrible to name into the zones. There are still some unsavories there that have evaded my reach. Presently, the time zones are not a safe place to be.”
